Uvicorn vs Apache Tomcat: What are the differences?

What is Uvicorn? The lightning-fast ASGI server. It is a lightning-fast ASGI server, built on uvloop and httptools Until recently Python has lacked a minimal low-level server/application interface for asyncio frameworks.

Decisions about Apache Tomcat and Uvicorn

I was in a situation where I have to configure 40 RHEL servers 20 each for Apache HTTP Server and Tomcat server. My task was to 1. configure LVM with required logical volumes, format and mount for HTTP and Tomcat servers accordingly. 2. Install apache and tomcat. 3. Generate and apply selfsigned certs to http server. 4. Modify default ports on Tomcat to different ports. 5. Create users on RHEL for application support team. 6. other administrative tasks like, start, stop and restart HTTP and Tomcat services.

I have utilized the power of ansible for all these tasks, which made it easy and manageable.
